Coffee



I use one of these filter cones (by Melitta) to make coffee for myself everyday. I love this thing because I know if there's ever an emergency where we lose electric (this happens in Florida during hurricanes or severe thunderstorms) I can still have my coffee.

I'd just boil water on the grill in a pot, and get to drinking my coffee.

Also I remember my grandmother had a similar filter cone but a bigger one that made a full pot.

Yep we use one too (although we just got a Keurig as a wedding gift...) I love to add cinnamon and sometimes honey to the coffee grounds rather than stirring them into the coffee after it's made.

I add cinnamon to my cup of coffee, because if I add it to the grounds they just seem to get gummed up. The cinnamon for some reason gets really slimy and then the coffee water can't get through the filter.

Cinnamon too.

But I've never tried nutmeg in my coffee.. it's a strong spice. Have you ever tried anise in coffee?

No, but I've had a dark chocolate candy bar with anise and coffee in it, and I LOVED it.

Would you go with powdered anise as an addition?

Nutmeg only when coffee is hot, btw, and it's a mocha.

Edit: And yeah, I'd use powdered just to make it easier to mix in with the liquid. I also happen to like anise in oatmeal.. what is it with this oatmeal and coffee connection? hrm

It will be added to my oatmeal at next consumption.

Btw, I got the aforementioned candy bar at Wal Hell for 20 cents, on sale!

I didn't wait to get out of the store before I tried it.

Deal.
So I added the nutmeg to the grounds, poured hot water over them, and now I can't taste the nutmeg. Did I do something wrong?

I add a sprinkle of nutmeg once the coffee is made, like adding salt to a dish once cooked.

Be liberal with your sprinkler, but not excessive.

For me, it adds.......piquance (but remember, I'm drinking mocha, so cannot guarantee results if you drink yours black).

I have favorite mugs/cups too. Somehow coffee tastes just right in them. Is it size, pattern, or imagination? I don't know.

If I see another choco, anise, coffee bar, would you like it????
I'm such a lightweight coffee drinker, always have been.. I need my cream and sugar (or powdered creamer and brown sugah). Mm mm.

And hot drinks taste ESPECIALLY good in this cup.

Too late!

Imma start looking.

I'm a lightweight, too. If there's no chocolate in it, I don't drink it. Why bother? Although I will accept caramel, in a pinch.
Aww..that's really sweet of you! Thank you!

Well I tried the java with nutmeg, and yes it's definitely piquant.. not sure I'm used to it. I tried it with anise too, but they were anise grains, not powdered. I'll have to grind them down in my mortar and try again.

It's not for everyone. I find my coffee has to be really hot to make it good (with nutmeg). I usually add it when I go to Starbucks (which isn't often), because I know I'll drink the whole thing while it's still nearly scalding.

Anise is next.
Not to jump in everyone's beeswax here, but I add nutmeg AND cinnamon to my coffee....(I prefer it with cream, but when I'm watching calories, etc...I"ll do it black as well) LOVE IT.

But my question is....how do you get it to stir into the coffee well? I always end up with a ton of spice floating at the top of my cup.... is there a secret I'm missing?
